Excellent location and a fantastic budget hotel
Posted Mar 25, 2014 on Hotels
Within walking distance of the city centre and opposite the national culture museum, it's a great budget choice.
They had everything expected of a hotel. The rooms are quite 70s, but everything is clean and works. We had a very modern bathroom though the toilet leaked a bit.
Bring some shampoo, as you only get a small sachet, hard soap is provided. Breakfast was good - don't expect gourmet cuisine, but there was enough choice and it was a welcome start to the day (and included). The hosts were friendly and happy to help by booking taxis to save you being ripped off by unscrupulous non official taxi drivers.
Taxi from airport is easiest way to get there, but go to the taxi desk in arrivals - do not go with anyone who approaches you no matter how official they look - you will be seriously overcharged. Should be around 12 levs.
Sofia is a great city to visit. Happy Grill (walk north for 10 minutes along the pedestrian street) will fill you with decent good cheaply whatever time you arrive.
Can highly recommend The House.
